Decisions made since last week

  • Family History Center Pages Links to Other Pages The majority seem to agree that a change be made in the policy verbiage regarding links to Family History Centers from county and other pages within the Wiki. The issue has been given to the Community Catalyst Team (Mike Ritchey's) for final decision and implementation.
  • Proposed Modification to County Page categories/topics Smaller groups hash out different examples, share with the larger group to get additional input and then do some “usability testing.” The notes taken from the discussions, along with links to the three different mockups that are being created are in FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject U.S. counties.
    • For everyone, from this point on, please keep the comments and questions regarding these pages on that talk pages and talk pages for the mockups it links to. Everyone is welcome in those discussions, as that will help us to be more informed as we discuss these matters in the meetings.
    • On the page above with our meeting notes, the questions that are still outstanding are listed. If you have questions that don't seem to have an answer or haven't been discussed yet, you can add to the list. Your opinion on the questions should go on the talk page.
